Bedford conducted the world premiere of Britten's Death in Venice in 1973

I note Bedford had to retire early with Parkinson's. Sad about that, though my musical enthusiasms are some distance from Britten.

Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth's 99-year-old husband, was admitted to hospital on Tuesday as a precautionary measure after feeling ill with an ailment that is not related to COVID-19.

When you get to his age, you're on a downhill slope and can expect to 'go' at any time. It isn't a tragedy, just what happens to us all.

We can still wish him well though!

My good friend here at the Home has just died aged 99. He has had the "last laugh" as he has donated his body to medical research and will livve on forever in the medical journals

Of course we can and I do. My body is also destined for medical research or transplants, if there's anything useful left after I've had full use of it.  Whatever remains after that will be cremated and will fertilise the garden of remembrance at the 'crem'.
